How do I display various hurricane tracks in windy?
Agreed - hurricane/storm track optional overlay would be a nice toggled function to have.
Another great functional add.
Windy needs to get the Winds right... kind of a poetic necessity. :)
I agree with many that that the wind data sets (wind & wind gusts) are are not easy to nail at all - let alone consistently. But I truly believe it needs to be mastered over time... especially in the angry weather world we have brought ourselves.
I think Ventusky is making a good effort here (though not sure on data accuracy audits re wind).
When Cat5 Matthew rolled thru Florida last year - the wind data projections were wildly off the further out from the storm centers.. useless actually.
When I looked that the micro-local Dark Sky wind speed projections... they were spot on.
I think that (in the end) there needs to be a artful balance between macro and micro data. That said: when you are in a storm - most want to know what is going to happen to me where I am... and those we love.
Master the winds... Windy!
Stay safe everyone....
@tomslavkovsky some great posts here. Love seeing ppl coming together accross the planet.
Might be worth your time to reach out to US Naval Research Center (https://www.nrl.navy.mil/radar/contact).
Not to be absolutist here: but if any organization would know about global radar resources - it would be the US Navy.
@benur Agreed a Windy TV app would be great (AppleTV 4K & Android TV apps). I just tried to mirror the WindyTV app from an iPAD - it came out wonky (i.e.; not good)
There are some GREAT weather apps available in iTunes that I have been using for years. Some of the 4K weather apps are functionally & aesthetically brilliant.
With nationwide Spectrum cable moving to Apple iTunes in a few months - TV app platforms will continue to kill cable tv.
WIndy - spread your windy wings and splash your wonderful presence on 4k TV as a dedicated app for 4k TV media. Thx!
